It enlarges credit, encourages thrift, puts a man on a broader business basis. Busy men think they will Increaso their protection to an adequate amount, but they too often postpone the Increase, promising to add to their Insurance some time, only to find In after years that the "sometime" never cones. If you are In business that requires bor rowing from time to time, ask your banker what he thinks of your having life Insurance to your credit when bor rowing, In addition to your visible assets and property of record. He will tell you that It Is a mighty good thing to have tho reserve security that life Insurance brings and ha will welcome you as a patron more because you have that protection. Tour loan will be mado with added satisfaction on both your own and his part becauso of the fact that you are backing up your assets of life with assets that will come to your estate in case something happens to you.

R. Talbot of the Modern Woodmen of Amer ica, spoke optimistically of the future of his ord or, having In mind local conditions In tho Modern Woodmen growing out of thn rate rovlslon controversy. Mr. Talbot pnld: "Some member recently questioned the nccuracy of a statement made by me when I said the Modern Woodmen of America Is bigger and stronger than ever and will live to fulfil tho mission for which our society was founded. Our re cent controversy over the rate question has led somo of our members to doubt the continued growth and prosperity of our socloty, but I havo faith In tho good Judgment of tho rank and file of our members. I believe absolutely that our society Is stronger than over and that out of tho scorning chaos of tho last two years will come an era of greater growth and prosperity than ever before. In other words I hnvo not lost confidence In our membership, who on the whole nro big enough and strong enough to solve every problem which confronts our order. "A perusal of tho membership roll of every local camp of our society will show that we have the representative following everywhere, and I am quite willing to trust tho future, of our Boclcty In the hands of such membors. Our only dan ger lies In tho fact that so many of our members aro not willing to glvo theso problems of legislation and management personal attention, but i of rain from at tending tho camp meetings and assume their personal share of responsibility. If tWoodcraft should be-leftln tho hands of the agitators and those with personnl axes to grind.

If so the issues will' be tried beforo a falr mluded, Impartial Jury with power to de cldo for tho best Interests of the order, not only In matters of legislation, but also In matters of management nnd tho selec tion of officials.

Blandford, who has been general agent for tho Mutual Bcnuflt Life Insurance company for the state of Ne braska for tho last three years, has been transferred to the Mlnneapolls-Ht. Paul agency of tho samo company. This Is a very Important promotion and carries with It great responsibilities. Mr. Blandford Is still a young man, but Is of the typo that will succeed In what ever capacity he Is placed. In 1908 he was made general agent for the Mutual Benefit at Phoenix, Ariz.; In 1909 he was transferred to Lincoln, at which place the company mado a second generat agency for Nebraska. In 1910 he was again trans ferred to Omaha nnd given the agency for tho entire stato., The business has been Increased to such an extent that Omaha Is now considered one of tho lead ing agencies In the United States. commission reducing tho rates from Sioux City, and that no schedule of such reduced rates has as yet been published by any of the railroads. Besides, the Commercial club of Sioux City had no part In the proceedings beforo the Inter state Commerce commission, In which the ordr was made, and which Sioux City believes will eventually reduce the rater. It was tho Iowa Board of Rail road commissioners that brought that cake, and It was the chairman of tho commission. Clifford Thorne, that fought It through to a successful finish. It was after tho decision had been rendered and after the first scalo of rates from In terior Iowa stations to Nebraska points had been mado by the commission that the Sioux City people got Into the case. This attempt on the part of Sioux City to take the orcdlt for having brought the action for the reduction and their further cffortB to make the order apply on rates from Sioux City to Nebraska points, are causing somo merriment among the few Omaha Jobbers who have learned nil the facts. It Is looked upon as likely that the new scale of rates now being prepared by the Nebraska Hallway commission will be In effect from Omaha to all points In northeastern Nebraska before any other change is mude In the rates from any other point, according to Omaha Job bers. This will mean that the business of the Omaha Jobbers In that section (it the state will be In Just as good shapu In the futuro as it ever was. Itecnmmriula Chaiubrrlnln'a Cuuifh Itrmrilr.

JOINT CONTROL A GOOD THING ltiMliKTu (hp TrniiitntlniiK tlmt Arc Apt tii Confront Uno I'rrion If l.rft to Do n lit I'lmse. .Charles U Moore, Jr., special ngent for tho Southwestern Surety Insurance com pany, has been spending somo time In Omaha studying local bonding nnd Insur ance conditions In Nebraska nnd Iowa. Mr Moore has for nomc time mado a careful study of bonding questions. The most distinctive feature, he says, during tho year Just past was th'o very marked Increase of corporate over personal bonds. All business inrn are now firmly con- I vlnced that the execution of a bond of any character Is n corporate function. J nnd as such should bo' avoided by the individual. Tliero nro many safeguards thrown about tho administration or estates of deceased persons by a bonding company that becomes surety tor nu- mlnlMrntors, executors, guardians, etc.. that nro found to bo very valuable to widows and orphans. Ono of tho most Important and probably the least under stood Is Hint of "Joint control." Joint control forbids tho dissipation of the estate nnd Is rapidly becoming bet ter understood nnd valued. Tho clause provides thnt when a bond Is written for a guardian, administrator or executor tho principal named In the bond and the surety company shall exercise Joint con trol of the assets of an estate. 'ny Joint control Is meant that nil money belonging to an estate shall be deposited In n bank or trust company in tho name of the principal In hlR fiduciary capacity nnd countersigned by the com pany or Its legnlly authorised agent," Mr. Moore snld. 'If thcro are assets, such as stocks, bonds, mortgages and certificates of de posit capablo of bolng converted Into money, they are, under the same agree ment, placed In n safety deposit box, ono key being held by the fiduciary and the other by the representative of the company. It Is Impossible for one of tho men to remove these assets without the knowledge nnd presence of the other. "When theso assets are converted Into money tho representative of the surety company keeps a watchful eye on tho transaction nnd Insists that the proceeds Immediately bo deposited In accordance with their prior agreement, and when ho deposited shall come under the Joint con trol arrangement. The agreement also provides for tho deposit of Income from real proporty, Interest on Investments and the like, "Tho surety company's representative will not countersign a check unless tho purpose for which It has boon drawn has been approved by the court, and an en voy of tho company, having no financial Interest In tho estate and no reason for converting funds to his own use, will In sist that the trust be administered ex actly In accordance with tho law", nnd that payment bo mado only for authorized purposes and to whom they are legally due. , "Funds" of minor children too young to have a full appreciation of tho Importance of business transactions, Incompetents and others, as well as the funds of es tates, where a. watchful cyo Is not being constantly kept upon their accounting, often havo melted away, but whore tho suroty company'! bond Is effective and nctual Joint control Is actively exercised, such Is Impossible. "The objection to Joint control conies from those who have not an adequate un derstanding of Its provisions and who never have taken the trouble to satisfy themselves ol Its advantages to them, and also from those persons who have an ul terior motive In protesting against such an' arrangement. The Joint control plnn merits tho study of thinking men who would protect women and children near to them." MID-WEST TO HOLD ANNUAL BANQUET.
